Musing Mondays #1

Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is about bookmarks…What do you use to mark your place while reading? Do you have a definite preference? Do you use bookmarks, paper, or (gasp) turn down the pages? If you use bookmarks, do you have a favourite one?
This is my first time participating in th Musing Mondays but I saw it at Yvonne's blog and I thought it was interesting.. If you are interested to participate too just click here ..

My Answer ...

I love nice bookmarks. So when I go to the bookstore specially if it's a new one to me I have to check out their bookmark rack to see if something attracts me.. I like the ones with quotes or cute quirks on them, sometimes cats or roses.. I have 2 Harry Potter bookmarks specially for reading my HP books one I bought and the other a dear friend custom made specially for me :)

Lately I bought some book-thongs .. believe it or not that's what they called them.. I got them online and they are GORGEOUS.. they are beaded and stunning, two are inspired by the Twilight series.. One with a crystal heart and another with a wolf :)

The others just looked nice and I just couldn't NOT buy them too :) what do you think?!

BUT, if by any chance I get reading a book and I don't have a bookmark handy, I'll look for anything to stick in the book, a reciept, a business card, anything that is available in my handbag!! If I can't find anything I'll just put a clean tissue in there! But I NEVER EVER do that doggy ear thing to a book, it's too precious to me to be creased in that inbooky (like inhumane) way! I even hate seeing books that have suffered this torture :)

Those are beautiful! I make most of the ones I use, with the beads attached to a little shephard's hook. I give them as gifts as well. I also collect one specific photographer's bookmarks, that have four photos of different places around the world...San Francisco and Chicago are my favorites!

Sandy, WOW you make your own bookmarks!! that is so cool! unfortunatly I have no idea how to make them :(
and when I bought those it was the first time I see any beaded bookmarks and just fell in love with them..
I imagine the photo ones would be really nice :)
